Sincualas To Kill a Mockingbird. Great movie. You can actually watch it in its entirety in The Darkness video game.

Abdul-Hakeem If you like foreign films, I recommend "Baran", "Song of Sparrows", and "Children of Heaven" by Majid Majidi. They are more like poems than normal films, you should enjoy the details and not a big ending. Good for all the family but not simple.

many kids nowadays don't realize Total Recall, The Karate Kid, and Red Dawn were remakes... The Day the Earth Stood Still is well into many adults not knowing it's a remake territory

A Bridge Too Far
Cool Hand Luke

TylerU Good titles..I'm gonna google them one by one, of course except GWTW, Spatacus, and Godfather Duh..
06-07-2013 02:47 PM
Titaness I just saw a classic movie called Indochine with Catherine Denevue <---sp? I really loved it though husband not so much. Subtitled

Oh yes at THe Sting was superb

I'm also looooving The Greatest Story Ever Told And classic biblical epic films or things like Spartacus. I'm just discovering them. Omg-- so amazing

Gone With the Wind.. Wow!

But as cliche as it may seem The Godfather is probably the best movie EVER. I never tire of it. There is another with Richard Dreyfus called Lansky. Awesome!

Oh yes and Neil Simon movies... Biloxi Blues is great as is Brighton Beach Memoirs.

Forgotten Masterpiece in Cinema, For Buffs Only.

Aint never going to pay $10 for the hollywood junk they make today, unless it's for the friends/ family atmosphere.. because there are so many amazing films that no one cares to see..

What movies do you recommend or wantin to see? The older the more classical the better.

Here is my top 10 Forgetten Masterpieces:

America, America - Elia Kazan
The Circus - Charles Chaplin
Wrong Man - Hitchcock
Winter Light - Ingmar Bergman
King of Comedy - Martin Scorsese
Koyaanisqatsi - G.Reggie
This Boy's Life - DeNiro, Dicaprio
Chinese Coffee - Al Pacino
Gummo - Harmony Korine
Bottle Rocket - Wes Anderson
